Retail Therapy: Nicole Miller

One can't deny that Nicole Miller knows a thing or two about fashion. Not many designers have the opportunity to enjoy a brand that is able to stay relevant for several decades. Nicole Miller currently has 15 free standing retail locations but her label is sold at more than 1,200 retail outlets. Could you imagine?

We love how Nicole varies her use of fabric and textures. Some seasons, the collection is stiff and super form-fitting, while other seasons the silhouette could be based on sheer opalescent fabrics. As her collections, Nicole's personal style varies greatly from the likes of South American designer, Marcia Ganem to the gothic-centric Rick Owens. One thing remains the same, however, just like you and me, Nicole appreciates a great discount.



What’s your most prized deal?
A Marcia Ganem garnet and silver hade-made Brazilian top – marked down from $14,000 to $800 – or my black leather Alexander McQueen coat purchased at a friends and family sale.

Biggest regret that you didn’t purchase?
A Rick Owens shearling coat last year

This season you are looking for …
A great shearling coat!

What is your number-one shopping tip?
Look in the rear view mirror before you buy!

What is your biggest weakness?
Givenchy shoes this year!

Is there an item for which a shopper should never mind paying full price?
Something that is perfect …
